Humbly bend thy knee
WARWICK: Who should that be? belike, unlook'd-for friends.
SOMERSET: They are at hand, and you shall quickly know.
March: flourish. Enter KING EDWARD IV, GLOUCESTER, and soldiers
KING EDWARD IV: Go, trumpet, to the walls, and sound a parle.
GLOUCESTER: See how the surly Warwick mans the wall!
WARWICK: O unbid spite! is sportful Edward come? Where slept our scouts, or how are they seduced, That we could hear no news of his repair?
KING EDWARD IV: Now, Warwick, wilt thou ope the city gates, Speak gentle words and humbly bend thy knee, Call Edward king and at his hands beg mercy? And he shall pardon thee these outrages.
WARWICK: Nay, rather, wilt thou draw thy forces hence, Confess who set thee up and pluck'd thee own, Call Warwick patron and be penitent? And thou shalt still remain the Duke of York.
Hail to the Raljon Damn Dirty Apes!" reigned supreme as the most viewed KOTCB post of all time - It wasn't even close. And for those of you laughing at a 737 page view total you can all go to hell because that's 734 more people seeing the post than I ever expected. But over the past few month "The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson" has been gaining page views at an astounding rate and over the weekend this thoughtful reflection on the demise of Fox News overtook my futuristic and nostalgic musings on my beloved Washington Redskins. How fitting, how perfectly timed and appropriate that my most popular football blog post should be overtaken on the weekend the National Football League decided to commit suicide and kneel before its executioner. Ah yes, The Iceman Cometh to destroy your self-deceptions or “pipe dreams" and face the truth. For the NFL the truth will not set you free - the truth will kill you, kill the teams, kill the networks, kill the advertisers and kill everything about the game including the plutocrats who own everything. Total annihilation is the goal and one might rightfully wonder why the Elvis from Queens wants to wipe out the NFL? For the answer I'd point you to an ESPN article by Ashley Fox from 2014 titled "Just say no to Donald Trump" where the journalist blackballs DJT from the owners box of the Buffalo Bills for all the usual reasons. Sure Trump wants to buy an NFL team but seriously...
Who knows and who cares weather Trump can buy a football team or even wants to buy a football team because even if he can and does there's no way the overlords who own and run the league will allow him to join the club because he can't win the "popularity contest." Well, payback's a bitch.
the Strange rally in Alabama when he called Kap So Black an SOB and said the NFL owners should fire anyone who doesn't stand for the playing of our (and their) National Anthem. BEFORE any of it the Donald had already laid siege to the NFL and now he's just executing the plan and that plan is to wake these motherfuckers up and start Making America Great Again. You know, you just know, that Trump had already spoken to Roger Godell and other NFL owners about this #TakeTheKnee "protest" and told them, politely, to bring it to an end but they didn't or wouldn't listen for whatever hair-brained reason because the NFL (and it's owners) believe that their league is bigger than the U.S.A.

This from the same guy who, more than anyone else, instigated and prosecuted the Crisis of the prolate spheroid - talk about an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL!!! And what happens when you show a "lack of respect" for the NFL and shove the owners weakness and sedition right down their throat? Take a look:
Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. He is fired,' Trump said.
Is that so? So if some National Socialist Seahawk decided to "protest" existing racial and other (?) divides in our country by goose stepping into a Nazi salute during the star spangled banner Paul Allen and the Seattle Seahawks organization would fully support said players free expression to bring these issues to the forefront (whatever the fuck the "forefront" is). Call me a skeptic but I don't think so - that dude would be yanked off the field and his contract would be terminated ASAP. So what's it going to be Paul Allen? Your hero, Jimi Hendrix is calling to you from the grave - will you stand or kneel?A statement from Seahawks President Peter McLoughlin pic.twitter.com/vGzMj0TFmz— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) September 24, 2017
